Method 1

If you are facing a Bluetooth issue the first thing I would recommend you to do is to clear the Bluetooth data present in the cache. Cache usually holds the frequently accessed data to speed up our process. Deleting this temporary data will help solving the issue to some extent.

Take the following steps in order to remove data from cache:

Step 1: Select the App icon from the home screen of your Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge phone.

Step 2: Tap the Settings icon.

Step 3: Hit Application Manager.

Step 4: Swipe the screen left or right in order to find All Tabs.

Step 5: Select Bluetooth.

Step 6: Tap Clear Cache.

Step 7: Select Clear Data.

Step 8: Choose OK.

Step 9: Now restart your phone.

Method 2

In case the above method fails to solve the Bluetooth issue,you might have to try clearing the wipe cache partition.

Take the following steps to clear wipe cache partition:

Step 1: Turn off your Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Android phone.

Step 2: Press Home button, Power button and Volume Up button altogether and hold them.

Step 3: Leave the buttons when you see Android recovery system screen.

Step 4: Now you have to use the Volume Down button to choose options such as Wipe cache partition and use Power key to select that option.

Step 5: Now restart your phone and try to connect with a Bluetooth device which is in range and see if the Bluetooth issue is fixed.
